Roman portraits II
The Glyptotek’s large collection of Roman portraits, mainly acquired by the founder of the museum, the brewer Carl Jacobsen, in the decades around the turn of the century, comprises all the powerful and famous men and women of Rome, as well as some of the anonymous Romans portrayed for official or private purposes.
In this second volume we meet the emperors who followed Nero – from Vitellus, who only occupied the throne for a few months in 69 A.D., through Trajan and Hadrian, who extended the Empire, up to Marcus Aurelius and his son Commodus, whose reign marked the end of a period of prosperity in 192 A.D
